NetBet was created in 2001, back when online gambling really started to take off. This bookmaker welcomes a number of nations through their doors, but they have a particularly strong following throughout Scandinavia, making them one of the biggest operators in that region.
They have drastically improved their sportsbook in recent years and whilst they haven’t always had the best reputation when it comes to design, they are now much more up to date. NetBet is probably best known for their erratic odds, but in a good way. You will see that for some bets they are massively better than the competition, whereas for others they are much more inline with industry average.
Sports Bonus: £50 Deposit BonusNew accounts at NetBet will be able to claim a welcome offer of £50 in bonus money. The promotion is a 50% match on your opening deposit when you use bonus code WELCOME50. This bonus must be turned over 6 times at odds of at least 3/5 (1.60) on any market in the sportsbook.
The NetBet Website
The site design has probably been the biggest change over the last 5 years here. It used to be pretty terrible but now they’ve got a modern design incorporating their traditional black, white and green colour scheme. It actually looks really nice now and is a pleasure to use.
The mobile app has to be our favourite platform to use. The online site is great, but it can feel a little cluttered. The mobile version is much more streamlined and, providing you know what you want to bet on, is a doddle to navigate the sports and then the betting markets. You are able to access the site on all mobile devices, whether that be an app downloaded from the App Store for iOS devices or simply by visiting the site in your smartphone’s browser.
We’ve mentioned it already, but the company really do need a fair amount of kudos when it comes to the current design. They’ve taken quite a bit of flack in recent years and that’s probably why they haven’t progressed outside of Scandinavia as they maybe should have. They are now back up there with the best, with exciting times ahead.
The range of sports on offer is massive reason why so many people use NetBet, with literally dozens of different options to choose from. What’s been great to see is that they have stuck to their Scandinavian roots somewhat and offer up a massive host of sports and leagues from the region.
The rest of us are able to enjoy all the options that you would expect from a bookmaker with over 15 years worth of experience. Football plays a large part in the makeup of the site, which is pretty standard. The range of markets that you get to access for football is really good, with well over 100 to choose from on any given match. Some of the higher profile games will see this number rise to over 200, well worth keeping and eye on.
Horse racing is another sport that is well covered these days also. The number of meetings that are on offer is huge, with races from throughout the UK and around the world on offer on a daily basis. The only downside is that this section is a little dull when compared with some of the competition. The race cards don’t include any write ups and the betting markets are limited to that of outright winner and forecast/tricast bets.
The pricing structure is one of the more favourable that we have tested. We spoke earlier about them being brilliantly erratic and we feel this is the best way to sum them up. We have seen bets where NetBet are much as 10% better than the next best price an also others where they are distinctly average. But, the best part is that we’ve yet to see where they are worse than average, meaning you could quite easily use them as a regular option, without the need to use backup sites with better odds.
Live Betting & Streaming
Live betting is the hub of the site and it’s where a lot of the action takes place. We feel that the design is pretty poor though, with a light green text on white background making it fairly tough to see the latest scores. It also included odds in green, which again makes it a little tricky to decipher if bets have shortened or lengthened.
But, apart from the design, the depth of the live betting section is actually very good and we found that some oft the bigger football matches would circulate over 100 markets when in-play. Even sports like basketball and tennis would regularly see over 40 in-play markets, which is again better than average.
You have a massive range of payment options on site, including Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and various other e-wallets and instant pay options. The minimum deposit amount is set at £10, ranging up to £5,000 with some of the e-wallets. If you want to deposit more than this it’s recommend you contact customer support prior to doing so to discuss your options as they often push you to use bank transfers for your own security.
You wont get charged any fees for withdrawals, with a minimum amount of £10 for all and limits of £100,000 per month. Again, if you wish to withdraw more you can but you will need to contact customer support. Processing times take between 2-12 days, method dependant.
